It's always too much and it's never enough. Confessions of a labelled potty mouth.
-By Leah Bonnema (Stand-Up Comic)
King is telling us about the time he was busted in high school trying to sell a sort of mini magazine (if you want all of the details my goodness read the book) and the teacher asks him why did he want to write junk anyway. (Again, I am summarizing, read the book, it's really quite a moment.)
King goes on to talk about how some people will always want to make you feel bad about what you create. He admits that he was well into his career and still feeling ashamed for what he likes to write about.
I was struck. Even a person (even a man lets me honest I always feel like women get the brunt of the shame game) who is incredibly well established would feel bad about something they seem so comfortable doing. I (guiltily) felt relieved.
